    I knew the answer to (2) as many years ago I read a wonderful piece of travel literature. I don't have the book anymore, but your question caused me to look it up on Amazon and it's still available. I might order a copy.

    You might be thinking of "Traveller"; Lee's horse is buried right outside the family vault in the chapel at Washington and Lee University.

    I knew the catgut one because I played violin as a kid. I knew the hundred years war question because I've gotten it wrong before. I knew the russian one because my greek friend and I were discussing the julian calender/orthodoxy yesterday, on the ride home from Traverse City.
